Sales in March 10.04
The Group’s sales in March decreased by 3% compared to the same period last year. The 8.2% decline in the printing services segment is mainly caused by the revenue decrease in paper sales. In the printing services, the decline was significantly lower reaching 2.3%. In contrast, the online media segment increased the sales by 12.8%. The periodicals segment -5.5% result is due to one less publication of weeklies compared to last year, termination of the DVD-series and hence the decline in single copy sales. However, the general weakness and volatility of the print media advertising market affects the periodicals segment result the most.
